Talon 15 is a 15 amp controller with an impressive 8 amp BEC. Applications range from foamies to micro, and sub-micro helis running up to 4S and pulling 15 amps. As with any Castle ESC, the Talon 15 offers Castle’s industry-leading functions, and easy programming using theCastle Link USB adapter, or the Castle Field Link Portable Programmer (sold separately).
Power System Alerts:
Talon ESCs are programmed to sound a number of tunes and codes using the motor as well as flashing LED patterns to alert users to certain conditions regarding their power system, such as over temperature, excessive load and locked head speed.
Telemetry has the potential not only to improve the safety of our models by monitoring battery voltages, ESC temperature, and other critical parameters, but it also creates other opportunities to get even more fun out of flying because you’ve essentially reduced the risks of “unknown” inevitable crashes. Think of the benefits to be had from alarms that will sound to warn you when there’s interference about or if your receiver battery is running unexpectedly low. Requires purchase of Castle Telemetry Link for S.BUS2 (Item # P-CC010-0152-00) and compatible Futaba Radio or Castle Telemetry Link for X-BUS (Item# P-CC010-0148-00) and a compatible Spektrum Radio.
Fully programmable Castle feature set using Castle Link USB adapter and freely downloadable Castle Link Windows software.
With the Castle Link USB Programming Kit you can use your WindowsT PC to easily program your controller. Castle Link includes all code for all Castle Link compatible hobby products in one convenient download. Note: Castle Link software requires a Castle Link USB Adapter and a computer that is running Windows. Castle Link is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Macintosh users may take advantage of software such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, or Apple’s Boot Camp along with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 to run the Castle Link software, provided the Macintosh has an Intel processor. Macintosh installation is not supported by Castle Creations.
